The Monster Popcorn Podcast is proud to present Episode 24 LIVE from Comic Con 2014! Daniel, Ben and Mel descended upon the population of San Diego to discuss one of their favorite movies from the ’80s, Ghostbusters!
We had an absolute blast recording the episode in front of a live audience! Our wonderful event planner (Teresa Dale from So Much Fun Events) came up with a lot of cool themed things for us to enjoy like our Ghostbusters photo-op area, Ecto Cooler drink station, concession stand and some delicious s’mores from San Diego’s own Mallow Mallow! We also had little goodie bags that included a mini-event poster, Monster Popcorn Podcast temporary tattoos, our very own silly string mini-proton packs and, of course, Twinkies! Needless to say, it was a really good time.
We’re very excited to release this special episode so that all you podcast listeners can enjoy the discussion and get a chance to win something fun (more on that below)! You can use the player embedded below or find the episode on iTunes and download it to your mobile device or computer.
So since we had some fun things to give away to the audience during the live event, we wanted to make sure we included all of you podcast listeners in on the giveaway fun too! We have a Ghostbusters trivia contest where you can win a special Ghostbusters Prize Pack that contains Funko’s POP! vinyl figures of Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz and Slimer! You’ll also receive some other goodies that we included in our goodie bags from the event.
CONTEST UPDATE!! The contest is now closed. Congratulations to David Weiner for winning the Ghostbusters Prize Pack! And thank you to everyone who entered the contest and listened to our first live episode! You guys rock! Keep an eye out for future giveaways!
